From Sublette County Public Health:
Sublette County Public Health is excited to offer free COVID-19 Saliva Testing to ALL Sublette County residents. We started this testing last fall for essential workers, local businesses, and seniors. Public Health is happy to be able to expand testing opportunities at this time to include all Sublette County residents. COVID-19 saliva testing is FREE and is completely voluntary. This is a saliva test that is completed by swabbing your own mouth under supervision from a medical professional. Drive-thru testing should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Results will be emailed/texted to participant—usually within 72+ hours after testing has been completed. Public Health is conducting drive-thru testing in front of our Pinedale Office on Mondays 1-4:30 p.m. and at the Marbleton Senior Center on Tuesdays 2-4 p.m. by appointment only. Registration opens every Wednesday afternoon for the following week’s testing. Go to the Curative website to register at https://curativetest.com/. Please contact Joanie Christie at 307-360-3125 for any questions or assistance with registration. Saliva testing is one tool we can use to identify people with extremely mild symptoms or those who do not have any symptoms (asymptomatic). It is an important step to keep our schools, community, and economy open. By identifying positive cases early, Public Health can quickly contact positive cases. In doing so, we can continue to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Sublette County. This testing is for monitoring only—this testing is not for individuals who are sick! If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please call the Sublette County Rural Health Care District to schedule testing or talk to a health care provider.
